What could be better than an Irish bar on a blustery, winter day? Earlier, I decided that I needed a Murphy’s Stout (http://www.murphys.com) and some time to sketch. Even though I don’t care for dark places to sketch (I can’t see well enough), The Irish Rover (http://www.theirishroverky.com), seemed like the right place at the right time.
The owner, Michael Reidy, is exactly what one needs when alone. He knows exactly how much friendly attention to give, and when to be hand’s off. Plus, he is Irish. Imagine that! I have frequented this restaurant over the years, love the ambience and adore the owner and his wife. Both are restaurateurs who have built a successful business with good food and even better service.
Plus, they make a mean Manhattan.
